So jealous of everyone getting ready to leave, sounds like you are having great fun.

We still have to receive the news on our visas so probably the last to hear are we.

Meds were received 1st November at LCU after a delay due to unexpected problem with hubbies meds.

Hope to be joining Sphjam in Cairns as soon as.

Have a fantastic flight and new life down under S-j

s-j youre doing well on the leaving party front.
At this rate you will be booking into a rehab clinic as soon as you land hehe
I wish it was me leaving next week but still have couple of weeks left in work to do then christmas with the family o joy

I had email from HR at the hospital im going to work at they are lookng into some accomadation for when i arrive. i told them one week would be plenty as it would help alot with settling in and getting everything we need for living in the rental. we are not taking much you see!

7 wks yest till we leave scary but exciting, me and OH have been talking about it this morning
When we made the decision to go i was doing my nurse training we didnt have that much money comng in and not much of a social scene. now im earning we have money coming in and our social life has taken off. having money means we can afford to go out and not doing training means i have more time to go out.
He asked me did i ever wonder if we was doing the right thing, would life really be better? I think deep down we know it will be if we stay all our money will be spent with the cost of living and we would never be able to afford the kinda house we will have in Oz.
i think these ramblings are someone getting the jitters.

How is everyone else feeling thats going?

good luck to all those still waiting, you will have these feelings soon no doubt.
Im off back to my tea and biscuits!! if i put on anymore weight i willpop

Cheers
Teryna

[QUOTE=bundybell;5581826]

Hya Teryna,

You are not alone with the strange feelings!

If all being well and we exchange just before christmas to complete 3/4th jan, our stuff is being shipped 2,3rd jan!! Then i can hand my notice in to work! we will stay with family for the last few weeks and fly out 26/27th ish of jan. It's a bit wierd but exciting at the same time. I am however, fed up with looking at houses in aus, we don't know what we will want until we get there. We've got to take one step at a time!

I have asked myself a few times, if i'm doing the right thing, but i know that we ALL really want to and if it doesn't work out after a few years we can always return to the UK. I'm not saying "we will never return" as we don't know what life has in store for us! We don't want to and hope we will take aus on as a challenge when times get tough

We are lucky to be staying with family in Ipswich when we first arrive. They live in a lovely pad with whopping pool, so we'll be making the most of that We will stay with them until we do their heads in and then find a rental.

I must admit i do keep on getting flutters of anxiety. I need to chill more but with what's going on at the mo i don't think it's very easy

On a lighter note...we'll get through it, we've not gone through all the stress so far to give up now hey?

Sam xxxxxxx

Hello! Yes I'm fine - been having a bit of a nightmare the last few weeks - house sale fell through - was selling to family member - say no more

Anyway - been up the wall getting it on the market and spruced - looks like we have another buyer but as I learnt the hard way - it aint sold till the contracts are exchanged so still having viewings which is a pure drag.

Many congrats to CrankySid and ASHO on your visas. Have finally updated the spreadsheet for you both! Nearly all green now. Hopefully thoses still waiting wont have much longer.

I'm in a permanent state of butterflies in the tummy - house or no house we are still flying on the 28th Dec. I'd already handed in my notice before my cousin dropped us in it with the house so no point hanging on.

Best of luck to S-J hope the flight is OK for you with the little uns

Butterflies in tummy -constant anxiety, stress!!!

We are all mental, but very brave too -here's to us

One day we will be able to take a look at this forum and remember how stressed out our lives were before we settled in the land of Aus
